2015 Integrated Report

Recruit, Retain and Develop Our Workforce

Our business is only as good as our people, and at Entergy, we are fortunate to work with the best in the business. Our talent and performance management practices are closely aligned with our business strategy and are designed to recruit and retain a skilled workforce and to train, develop and promote individuals to achieve our business objectives. Talent and performance management supports organizational health improvement by emphasizing key leadership and employee practices. We have an integrated talent management system that helps manage recruiting, onboarding, performance management and succession planning. We use performance and talent management processes to help employees develop their capabilities, achieve career goals and contribute to the company’s goals and objectives. Our employee development strategy includes training and a variety of other resources to support developmental opportunities. We also engage with external partners to supplement employee development. In 2015, we completed an effort to align and standardize several key talent management processes, including goal setting, performance reviews, individual development plans, talent assessment and succession planning.

We continued to enhance our recruiting and development initiatives in 2015. For example, our transmission group recruited new engineering, project management and construction employees to support its growing number of infrastructure projects to enhance reliability and serve new customers. Recruiting efforts included targeting college recruiting at several universities and an Entergy Interview Day in New Orleans. Additionally, major training efforts are underway throughout the transmission group. A new transmission boot camp that provides craft training graduated 42 employees in 2015, its second year of operation. Graduates return to their home offices, where they begin on-the-job training and the certification process.

Competitive total compensation programs are also important to recruiting and retaining employees. In addition to salary and benefits, our comprehensive Total Rewards package gives eligible employees access to a defined contribution savings plan, with company matching and numerous investment options. Retirement plans allow employees to plan for their future. Health and welfare benefits include medical, dental and vision coverage options, as well as employee assistance, including work-life balance programs. Through our annual incentive pay plan, we reinforce high levels of individual and company performance through bonus programs for eligible employees, in addition to annual merit pay increases.
